Serves: 1

Dietary preferences: Vegetarian, Gluten-free, Nut-free

Ingredients:

Refried Beans:

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • ¼ brown onion, finely chopped
  • ½ garlic clove, crushed
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp chilli powder
  • 200g canned kidney beans, drained, rinsed

Salsa:

  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • ¼ small red onion, finely diced
  • Lemon juice, to taste
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • ½ tbsp coriander, chopped

Guacamole:

  • ½ avocado
  • Lemon juice, to taste
  • Pinch of ground cumin
  • ¼ garlic clove, crushed

To Serve:

  • 1 handful natural plain corn chips
  • 40g reduced-fat cheese, grated
  • 50g plain low-fat yoghurt or low-fat sour cream
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Method:

1. To make the refried beans: heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 3-4 minutes until softened, stirring often. Add the garlic, cumin and chilli powder and cook for 1 minute until fragrant. Add the beans and 3 tbsp water and cook for 5 minutes until heated through, stirring often. Remove from the heat and roughly mash the bean mixture using a potato masher. Season with salt and pepper, if desired and keep warm.

2. To make the salsa: place all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix well to combine. Season with salt and pepper, if desired and set aside.

3. To make the guacamole: place the avocado, lemon juice, cumin and garlic in a small bowl and mash with a fork. Season with salt and pepper, if desired and set aside.

4. Preheat the grill and line a baking tray with baking paper.

5. Arrange the corn chips on the prepared baking tray and sprinkle over the cheese, making sure the corn chips are nicely covered. Place under the grill for 3-5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

6. Carefully, transfer the nacho chips onto a serving plate. Top with the refried beans, salsa and guacamole. Finish with a dollop of yoghurt or sour cream on top.

Enjoy!
